I had the honor of attending the Ginger & Liz Fall Colour Collection preview last Thursday hosted by the Carol's Daughter BackRoom Hand & Foot Spa in Harlem...
|Carol's Daughter Flagship - Harlem, NY|
Ginger & Liz are founders of an amazing line of nail colors that are fun, sassy and rich in color. I featured them in my Top 10 Spring Essentials list in April.
Fashion and beauty industry insiders enjoyed cocktails sponsored by Ciroc and free Ginger & Liz manicures at the spa. Not to mention amazing company...

All of their new colors were on display with mini nail bars stationed around the store for guests to try on different colors.
I had a hard time choosing which color I wanted! In the end, I went with the deep green color on the right, appropriately named "Blowing Money Fast" (shoutout to Rick Ross).

"Blowing Money Fast" seemed to be the guest favorite of the evening, as I spotted these two lovelies with that same color.
I did my BMF mani with a twist, adding a goldish color to my ring finger. Had to switch it up!
|Crystal Streets, celebrity stylist|
I spotted Crystal Streets, celebrity stylist of the B.Lynn Group. She'll be making her on-screen debut in this season's new Oxygen reality show "House of Glam". I met her briefly at Honey Mag's photoshoot with The Dream, which she did an awesome job styling.

It's nice seeing old friends and making new ones. Ran into my love Janelle Grimmond aka JMadison. This girl's such an inspiration - market editor at Essence and newfound female emcee.
|With Maya A. Lake - Designer, Boxing Kitten|
I ran into another lovely lady I admire. This is Maya, creator of clothing line Boxing Kitten. I've been posting about her pieces for a while now. Solange Knowles is one of their avid fans.

Towards the end of the event I finally snapped a pic with Ginger & Liz, the lovely ladies behind the brand. On the right is famed celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan, who has minxed nails for big names like Beyonce.
